The local Regal here told me that they are removing all box offices in all their theaters and replacing them with Kiosks. That pisses me off because it take away jobs

How wonderful to know this space is being re-cycled into more retail space, and no doubt, fast-food outlets. BTW, we also screen movies!!!!

Late Nov 2021/Early December 2021

Renovations begin to update E-Walk appearance to the new, updated Regal design (similar to Essex Crossing and the Union Square update). Work started on the entrance/box-office area first using the space previously used by Starbucks. The original entrance / box-office area closed around second week of December 2021. That space is supposedly going to a new Target coming next door.

Work stopped at top of lower escalators, with more changes to come.

Loews opened this cinema on November 12, 1999, with the following movies: The Bone Collector, Pokémon: The First Movie, Dogma, The Insider, Being John Malkovich and American Beauty.

From what I’ve been reading on CT AMC theatres are like the ones of the former UA; not known for good maintenance.

The Regal Theaters are in much better condition than the AMC and better kept. The bathrooms are cleaner as well.

This cinema is still open despite its location being just across from AMC Empire 25. In my opinion, it doesn’t make any sense. I kinda relate this rivalry to Colossus Vaughan vs AMC Interchange 30 or AMC Ontario Mills 30 vs Regal Edwards Ontario Palace 21.

Just now saw it. What was the 2010 screen like, to be better than the 2014 screen?

1.90. in 2014 I believe they put a floating 1.90 no masking. The first RPX screen installed in 2010 was better.

Can anyone remember the aspect ratio of the RPX screen? Is it 1.90 or 2.35? Or is it somewhere in between?

It’s kinda like Dolbyy Cinema at AMC where the sound is better than the imax yet the picture sucks

For me I think the RPX is a waste of money. Spending the extra money to see bars at the top and bottom of the screen is a waste.

Theater 13 (RPX) is indeed a flat floating screen now, so it doesn’t have masking. The GM told me that it was 70 foot.

Theater 12 remains a standard wall installed screen, so it has masking. A scope movie won’t have letterboxing here (thank goodness). However a flat movie in theater 12 will have some image cut off due to the masking being weird there for flat movies and not moving all the way to the sides. The staff could probably fix it by adjusting the lens before a flat movie begins playing but of course that is an unreasonable expectation nowadays.

I’d recommend for flat movies here to go to Theater 13 and for scope titles to go to theater 12.

However even scope films in the RPX are alright because the screen is so huge, it’s like an IMAX screen, the letterboxing isn’t as annoying as elsewhere.

The sad thing Theatre 13 specs are wrong because Regal put in a newer RPX screen sometime after Argo played in 2013. All scope films have letterboxing. Regal should of left the original screen in 13.

Living in Philly, I saw only one movie there, in 2001, in aud 2, because I was seeing more movies in historic theaters. The opening article has the screens at 32 to 45 feet wide (with 4 of them being 36 feet wide) except for 2 auditoriums with 64 feet wide screens. The 64 feet wide is huge, but I did not know that there were such large screens in this plex when it opened. I’d fear now they don’t use masking so scope movies in those 2 large screens which have flat dimensions, would be letterboxed.

What new logo signage? Nothing has been changed.

New logo signage has been at this theater since Cineworld took over Regal back in the fall of last year. AMC needs to step up their a game and put more recliners in their other non premium screens to match up with regal.
